Close By
Recorded by Patty Loveless
Written by Bill Monroe and Winkle Van

G D7 G
You've gone so far away my darling
C
Each time I think of you I cry
G
I'll press your picture to my bosom
D7 G
Then I'll feel that you're close by

D7 G
The years have passed you've not returned dear
C
Now they say that you have died
G
But your soul will live forever
D7 G
Now I know you'll be close by

D7 G
I saw you last while you were leaving
C
The tears from you I tried to hide
G
You took me in your arms and said dear
D7 G
Your memory I keep close by

D7 G
They've buried you in a lonely graveyard
C
And a spot they've left beside
G
Now we'll sleep 'til Jesus calls us
D7 G
So that we can be close by
